As we embark on a new chapter with our ESOL learners at Ipswich Community Media, we find ourselves facing a unique challenge this year. In the past, we have been fortunate to receive grant funding from Trinity to cover the costs of ESOL exams for our dedicated learners. However, this year, our learners are required to bear the expense of approximately £50 to sit their Reading and Writing exams.
For those unfamiliar with ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) exams, they play a vital role in assessing the English language proficiency of non-native speakers. These exams not only measure our learners' progress but also open doors to employment, education, and integration into the wider community. They are a significant milestone on their journey towards language fluency and a brighter future.
We believe that no learner should be denied the opportunity to demonstrate their language skills due to financial constraints. That's why we are reaching out to our compassionate community for support. Together, we can ensure that our ESOL learners have the chance to sit their exams and showcase their hard-earned knowledge.
By contributing to our mini fundraising appeal, you can make a meaningful impact on the lives of our learners. Your generous donations will directly support the payment of exam fees, removing the financial burden and allowing our learners to focus on their studies and achieve success. Every pound donated brings us one step closer to empowering our learners and helping them overcome barriers that stand in the way of their dreams.
To contribute to this important cause, please visit our website justgiving.com/campaign/ipswichcm and click on the donation button. No amount is too small, as each contribution adds up to make a significant difference.
Let us come together as a community, united in our commitment to empowering our ESOL learners. With your support, we can ensure that every learner has the opportunity to sit their ESOL exams and take a giant leap towards a brighter future. Together, we can unlock doors of opportunity and create a more inclusive society.
Thank you for your generosity and belief in the potential of our learners. Together, we can make their dreams a reality.
